I’ve been praying the Divine Mercy Novena since Good Friday. (I’m grateful to those who are praying along with me!)
Those praying the novena know it ends on April 27th, the day before the Feast of Mercy.
Have you heard of this feast?
Have you ever heard of the Divine Mercy Novena?
St. Faustina wrote,
“The Lord told me to say this chaplet for nine days before the Feast of Mercy. It is to begin on Good Friday” (Diary, 796).
“I desire that during these nine days you bring souls to the fountain of My mercy, that they may draw therefrom strength and refreshment and whatever grace they need in the hardships of life, and especially at the hour of death.
On each day you will bring to My Heart a different group of souls, and you will immerse them in this ocean of My mercy, and I will bring all these souls into the house of My Father. You will do this in this life and in the next. I will deny nothing to any soul whom you will bring to the fount of My mercy. On each day you will beg My Father, on the strength of My bitter Passion, for graces for these souls” (1209).
Pray with Me
I’ll be praying the Divine Mercy Novena, and I want you to join me!
How do you measure your worth?
While facing some personal challenges, I came across words that reminded me of an important truth — words I needed to see at that moment. (God is good!)
I’d like to share these words with you. I pray they help others the way they helped me.
While cleaning out my room recently, I came across an essay I wrote in sixth grade!
The sixth grade students of my school participated in a Diocesan wide essay contest. Each student was asked to research a saint or prominent Catholic of African ancestry and compare the person’s values with someone we knew.
Below is my article. I’ll explain why I’m sharing it with you at the end of the post.
